 Dr. Ding Yan
Raleigh Academy of Chinese Language

Week after week, year after year, Dr. Ding Yan has been helping the Raleigh Academy of Chinese Language to carry out its mission of conducting Saturday classes, sponsoring cultural activities, and contributing to the larger Chinese community. He has been a room parent, the Safety Team Coordinator, a member of the Discipline Committee, the president of the school’s PTA, a Board Member, and is currently the Chairman of the Board and the Administration General Manager. Yan helps the school to function on a weekly basis and also lays out long-term plans, overseeing both the immediate needs and the future needs of its more than 300 students and their families. Dr. Yan’s supervisor, Principal Zhiping Zhang, notes that Yan is especially adept at understanding the friendships between people of various backgrounds who form this community, and praises Yan’s “excellent leadership and organizational skills.”

Thank you, Dr. Yan, for the important work you are doing with this great institution!
